Giant Spruce Trail

After our tide pool adventure we had a little picnic before starting the Giant Spruce trail. We snacked on PB&Js, apples, grapes and chips then we started our hunt for the 600 year old spruce. It was about 2 o'clock at this point almost 3 hours past Maisie's normal nap time, so we were a little worried she was going to have a melt down half way through the trip, but we carried on and prayed that she would sleep in the hiking pack. See pictures for results...

about 10 minutes in she fell asleep. Austin was humming edelweiss to her as he blazed the trail.
